The Freshwater biome consits of rivers, ponds, lakes, streams, creeks, and anything that is made up of fresh water.  Because of the purity of the water, the absence of the harsh salt, and the adaptability of the water, a broad spectrum of plant and animal life can be found in these areas.  Because this biome is all over the world, there is no average anything. 
 
PLANTS
Almost any plant can live in this area.  Most common are trees, shrubs, and grasses.
 
ANIMALS
As with plants, you can find a huge variety of animals, especially mammals, in the freshwater biome.
 
FUN FACTS:
The freshwater biome contains the second most diverse group of plants and animals.
Although it is not the largest, this biome is the most spread out over the world.
